Triple Hopper

Open Top Hoppers: Triple Hopper

FreightCar America’s Triple Hopper is designed to be an all-steel / stainless steel open top hopper having six doors arranged to operate in pairs with double adjustable door locks. This innovative hopper car provides more features and options to further improve the operating efficiency for our customers moving coke, aggregate, or minerals.
The standard car is available with an independent or fully automatic door system, which is operated using our patent-pending all-in-one touchpad control panel. The doors can be opened individually, or in combinations of two or all three doors simultaneously, using touchpad activation. The door system includes an emergency manual override feature, plus the doors’ pneumatic control valves have an external manual override that also indicates open/closed position.
Our Triple Hopper features riveted and mechanically fastened construction and our patented cold-rolled 70ksi yield steel center sill. Our Triple Hopper car can be created from virtually any standard draft gear donor car. We also build coke triple hopper cars that come in several sizes/capacities and with bodies in all steel or a combination of steel and stainless.
These features of our Triple Hopper Car can be configured to meet your specific requirements or preferences:

  • Size / capacity
  • Stainless option
  • Aluminum body
  • Hybrid option
  • Door system
  • Brake system
  • Exterior finish
  • Gondola & open top design
  • Modification available from coal or small cube car or similar
  • Covered option available

As part of our dedication to customer service, any of our railcar products may be further developed to meet the specific characteristics of the bulk or containerized freight being transported — as well as any other customized requirements or specifications required by our clients.

Our commitment to quality and customer services begins with the first customer contact and extends through the life of the railcar. Our Customer Service Department is staffed by a highly qualified and experienced team with the resources to help with any of your service requirements.
